I’ve noticed myself blogging more and more lately about “green” products. The technology is available to create things that are better for our planet, and I feel that it should be utilized to its full potential. One thing that I keep trying to push for is that everyone should be using compact fluorescent light bulbs in every room of their house. Each individual bulb may be more expensive than an incandescent bulb, but the current average lifespan of them is 7 years! That, together with the fact that over that 7 year period, each bulb can save you $35 over your current electric bill should be enough to get most people to switch. Unfortunately, it isn’t. I see very few people using CF bulbs in their homes.
I’ve been looking over several environmental products at greenandmore.com. This company is about as green as it gets. Their offices and sites even follow green practices. They use 100% recycled cardboard and don’t use any plastic-y items. They practice what they preach.
I have been enjoying their blog (greenmusings) quite a bit today. They have some informative posts, and some neat information about going green, and what it’s like to get there.
One more thing, if you order anything from them, there is a 10% off coupon below. Just be sure and use the code when you order something. And remember, it’s not just your planet…it’s mine too.
Do you remember all of the hype about the million dollar home page? The web page with exactly one million pixels, and each pixel would cost you one dollar if you wanted to put an image in it. Well, Alex Tew sold that entire page in record time and landed himself a nice $1,000,000. That’s right, there are six zeros there.
Now enter Ryan Shamus of Bloggings Most Wanted. Ryan has an idea that is based on the original Million Dollar Homepage, but this time the page is geared more toward the blogging community. His pixel blocks are larger as well. (40px * 40px). And for the larger pixel blocks, his price is a tiny bit more expensive. There are only 625 blocks available. A quick sellout is expected.
For $15 you can buy a block on Bloggings Most Wanted web page and become a part of blogging history. There is a strong feeling that this is going to go viral which means that it could sell out in a matter of hours after it does. The viral effect means more clicks on the image you put up, and more traffic for your blog.
One more thing, when you buy a block for $15 if you put a link on your blog (in the sidebar, in a post…etc) Ryan will paypal you $5 back. So the link only cost you $10. AFter all the blocks are sold, Ryan will also have a cash drawing of everyone who participated and bought a block. The prizes are:
1st Place – $1000.00 Dollars CASH
2nd Place – $500.00 Dollars CASH
So your $15 (or $10) investment gives you a 1 in 312.5 chance of winning at least $500. That’s not a bad return! Head on over to Bloggings Most Wanted and get yourself a spot before they are all gone.
I’m about to spill the beans on something here. The wife and I are planning on having another baby. 🙂 The first child we had (and still have), well, making her was easy. The first month we tried, and blammo!, the wife is pregnant.
This time it hasn’t been so easy though. We have tried for 2 months now, but no dice. We really thought we had it this month, but it didn’t happen. She felt so strongly that she was pregnant, that she got her old maternity clothes out, and got a few new ones as well.
The one in this photo came from KikisFashions.com. She really likes it. So much in fact, that she wore it the whole day after it came in the mail. I came in from work and thought it was funny that she was wearing a maternity top not being pregnant and all.
She said that the material was soft and the top was very comfortable to wear. I was particularly fond of how it accented her boobs.!Â 😈 She continues to wear it even though she isn’t pregnant yet, and I continue to drool over her! I’m beginning to think she likes wearing it just so she can tease me.Â HA!
